Some Android users with AT&T U-verse can now watch up to 100 channels of live television on their device
If you are an AT&T U-verse customer who happens to use an Android device, you have the opportunity to watch live television on your phone or tablet. Within your home network, you will have the ability to select from 100 live channels. Outside your home network, you will be limited to 20 live channels. That is something that might need to be changed in the future since you would ideally want more channels to chose from when you are on the road and away from home.

Besides the live channels, the AT&T U-verse app also gives users the opportunity to choose from a library of on-demand movies and television shows. The app also lets you control your DVR remotely, and lets you search for specific content. Before the live streaming became available to Android users, iOS owners were able to enjoy all of these features including the live television streaming.

Users will have to authenticate their AT&T U-verse account, of course, and not every Android model will support the live television. Check out the slideshow below for a list of Android phones that support the feature, screenshots from the app, and a list of all 100 channels available while you are using your home network.

Awesome, but not when you don't have unlimited data anymore and get annihilated on overages. I feel like my fast LTE is more pointless than ever now.

Exactly! Look but don't touch tech. It's like owning a Mercedes that only gets 1/2 mile per gallon, that also only takes premium gas. Need to have Google make their own network. A network that doesn't stiffle growth in trade for pure unadulterated greed.

Same problem here with AT&T. I feel like its an insider scam to get people to use this new "idea" to increase overages on their cell phone bill.

It's like great I can stream football/television with my verizon LTE (which is faster than my home Internet in some cases) but I am forced to not using it and watching YouTube videos in LOW QUALITY when I have 4G LTE. Unbelieable lol. And it costs less to run more data over the pipelines if I'm not mistaken.

I have uverse, would tricking it into thinking my Nexus 4 is one of those phones or is it locked to ATTs network. Because I have tmobiles unlimited with plenty of data to burn.

Those are all AT&T branded handsets that are listed. I have a Verizon Galaxy Nexus and it works just fine with the Uverse app.

The live TV feature apparently only works if you also have uverse for internet. Every single channel has the "you're not on your home network" icon, even though I'm at home.
